About

David Wallace-Wells’s book ‘The Uninhabitable Earth’ is the defining portrait of the climate crisis.

His assessment on the speed and severity of global warming is shocking – but you need to hear it. It’s far worse than you think, it’s happening much faster than you realise - and it’s going to change every aspect of how you live.

In the last 6 months, we’ve seen floods in Germany, wildfires in Greece and in the UK we’ve had one of the wettest years on record. Now the U.N. IPCC report on climate change has set out a grim prognosis that if we do not ramp up our efforts to tackle the climate crisis, the results could be irreversible.

Dame Jo da Silva DBE FREng FICE is Global Director of Sustainable Development at Arup, leading activities to address the climate, biodiversity and equity crises through creating safe, inclusive and resilient communities.

AstraZeneca has been leading the fight against Covid-19, but as the largest company in the FTSE100 it also takes its role in tackling climate change very seriously. Non-Executive Director Nazneen Rahman CBE is a leading geneticist and is responsible to the Board for sustainability matters.

Join our Sustainability Summit to hear Nazneen Rahman, Dame Jo da Silva and David Wallace-Wells discuss how business leaders can accelerate action towards achieving net zero carbon. Take part in the discussion about how to lead your business to a more sustainable future.
